Contrary to modern times, astrology – as a part of astronomy – had been regarded as an important discipline through ancient and mediaeval times. Constellation maps and depictions of different theories about the structure and characteristics of the universe showed not only the observed stars and other celestial objects on the sky but the creatures of the myths and legends associated with them. Astrology had been part of higher education, astrological charts and projections were commonly made for important occasions and events, even in Christian Europe.
